Spoiler:
Especially with that last page...

Ultimately, I think Gosho will find a way to preserve the status quo, here—to keep things as they were, before—but I didn't expect for her to be there and for her to do that...

Oh gosh, I love how spunky Aoko is allowed to be. I think that because the MK universe isn't a serious story, she's allowed to keep her assertive spirit and not be forced to conform to the "ideal sex object" that Ran eventually had to become. She's allowed to be aggressive about her desires and not take shit from Kaito.

Though, Aoko is the very typical "Goushou love-interest-girl." He's got a thing for confident, assertive teen girls with attitude that can hold their own against their boyfriends, girls who pursue just as much as they are pursued. Also, with fathers that are an obstacle.

Anyways, I'm really happy that we get another story focusing on Aoko.

ETA:
Spoiler:
Wait a sec... am I reading this right? Kaito says, 「でも今は、寺井ちゃんの友人の博士に直してもらって新車同然だぜ?」 If I remember enough Japanese, I think it means "But as for now, it (the motorbike) is fixed up by Jii-chan's professor (Hakase) friend as a favor, and hasn't it become like a new car?"

I'm wondering if this Hakase friend of Jii's is a certain other Hakase known for extensive mechanical knowledge?

What the heck's going on? Did Aoko just discover Kid's identity?

My fanfic account:
https://www.fanfiction.net/u/7291651/Swagnarok
Character key for my DC stories:
Yoshiteru Nichimura: Japanese-American CIA agent, Hidemi's colleague and former boyfriend. Known among the ranks of the CIA as "Grim Reaper", from his skull-like face and his deadly short-range combat skills. He has a very good fast draw and he's very highly proficient in the Israeli martial art form called Krav Maga. However, he has no talent as a sniper, and he doesn't bother trying to be one.
Ryan Jackson: African-American CIA agent and director of CIA operations in Japan involving the Black Organisation. He was once good friends with Ethan Hondou, who taught him how to charge at a gunman without getting hit. He was an army chaplain who served in Iraq, seeing combat on numerous occasions, most notably during the Second Battle of Fallujah. He's been a lifelong resident of Metairie, LA, and he's married with several children. He graduated from Loyola University Maryland. His favorite saying is, "It is sometimes necessary to lie damnably in the interests of the nation."
Elena and Atsushi Miyano: Faked their deaths and now secretly lead a "White Organisation" against the Men in Black. Parents of Akemi, Shiho, and Satoshi Miyano.
ELXR-0666: A drug developed by the BO that can revive the dead, the ultimate aim of their research and development of APTX-4869.
Nancy Akechi: Ran Mouri, revived by ELXR-0666 and then shrunken to a 7/8 year old by APTX-4869. Lives with Conan and her two parents, who are unaware of her true identity. Is the sixth member of the "Detective Boys".
Cognac: Shinichi Kudo made a bargain with Elena Miyano: Join the BO in exchange for the drug that could revive Ran from the dead. He became a Black Crow under the codename Cognac, specialising in using his detective skills to investigate matters important to the Organisation.
Antichrist: An ancient hominid species very closely related to Homo Sapiens. They were biologically indistinguishable from human beings, except for the presence of the "Altar Organ", an internal bodily organ that allowed them to replace one of their other body parts, even the brain, with a corresponding one belonging to another person upon consuming said replacement body part. This species went extinct long ago, but they are relevant to the BO's plans today.
Yoko Okino: Boss of the Black Organisation upon the death of Korn, who in turn succeeded Pisco. Codename: Cabernet Sauvignon. Her mother was a member of the BO Council, and she raised her daughter to worship the Ancient Canaanite gods. Yoko's philosophy was also shaped by something that she witnessed as a child, the bullying of one of her classmates that led to suicide. She represents the "young blood" of the Organisation, and her religious fervour sets her apart from the Council, which consists of elderly and middle-aged bureaucrats and businessmen. She sees them as heretics.
Mezcal: Biochemist who assumed control of the APTX-4869 project upon Sherry's defection. He joined the project approximately one year before the events of Episodes 128-129 and the two of them worked closely in developing the drug.

Spoiler:
This "professor who is a friend of Jii" was first brought up in the anime. I don't know if it's just teasing for the sake of teasing or it will truly turn out said professor is indeed Agasa.

Spoiler: I spent some time reading the speech bubbles(ugh, I'm so out of practice) and here's some info that I gleaned:
Kaito’s in for some baaad luck according to Akako's Tarot cards, and Akako propositioned Kaito again. Now we know what color panties she's wearing.
Jii-chan’s “hakase” friend fixed up the motorbike that Kaito wants to use to outrun the police.
Hakuba shows up to be a killjoy when Kaito’s showing off the bike, saying that only low-powered motorbikes are allowed by their school.
Aoko has unmasked (hatted) Kaitou KID. Jeeze Kaito's an idiot. What's he doing without a mask when dealing with Aoko?
Is that a Buddhist nun talking to Inspector Nakamori?

From what I can see, in this chapter, Kaito is proving thoroughly what a moron he is. Showing up to school where multiple enemies of his are known to gather, showing off the motorbike he wants to use as Kaito KID. Sure, Hakuba totally won't figure that one out right away. And why isn't he using any disguise as Kaito KID before Aoko? She's one of the people who could recognize him the easiest, and he's not wearing a mask???

Spoiler:
Okay, so, while Aoko and Ran do look very similar, the girl in that last part of the spoiler (the one who takes his hat off) looks more like Ran than Aoko. It's possible that this'll be a crossover case, where the two of them get mixed up together and fall underneath the trap door, after which Ran mistakenly concludes that Shinichi is the Kid, and Kaito mistakenly concludes that Aoko knows his identity. That'd be a pretty hilarious situation.

Spoiler:
No, it's definitely Aoko. She yells, "Ka-KAITO?" and it uses the correct Kanji for Kaito's name, so it's definitely Aoko recognizing Kaito under the hat.

At this point, there should be a 100% chance that the status quo will win out, even for an optimist like me, but I'll leave the chances of a change at .01%, just in case.

Spoiler:
There's something wrong with Aoko's phone. In page 11, she is falling and she's grabbing it with her right hand. Then, in pages 12 and 13, it dissapears until the last panel, where it is shown flying around (Must be hers, bcs I don't think Kaito would bring his to a theft). So my guess is that some assistantant forgot to draw it in those panels, but I think it is going to be important, because they can call Nakamori and ask him for help or use it as a lintern or something else, because Gosho bothered to draw it in the panel when they hit the ground.
